Amazing. Istvan Puskas, a 52 year old tractor driver in a small town close to Budapest, Hungary made his own motorcycle from scratch. So far nothing special, many people have done it before him. But what makes this motorcycle special, is that it is made out of wood. Totally from wood, apart from the engine and some other important parts. Even the wheel is made out of wood, apart from the tire.

He spent two years making the motorcycle from firewood. The bike looks amazing. There's no data on the weight, I'd expect it to be pretty heavy, and what engine he used (a steam engine would have been great..).

This is one ecological motorcycle. When the bike comes to its end, you just burn it..

He even has a matching helmet... how cool.
